My current role focuses on maintaining Canvas for Katy ISD and developing new tools and trainings for users. Previously, I was a Classroom Technology Designer from 2016/2017 to 2019/2020 school years at several high schools and junior highs. I have six years of classroom teaching experience - I taught AP Environmental Science, Chemistry, and IPC at Morton Ranch HS and Miller Career & Technology Center. I graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a B.S. in Geology and minor in Environmental Science. Previous to my teaching career, I worked as an Environmental Geologist focused on groundwater and soil remediation projects. I have a passion for spreadsheets and love developing methods to increase efficiency and reduce investment in tedious tasks. I love learning - whether it's something technology related or something more traditional like making costumes and quilts.
